The culinary scene here is a rich mix of different cuisines and flavours.

From the local family run Thai joint to some of the best fine dining in all of Asia, Hua Hin’s restaurants are diverse, plentiful and cater for just about everyone.

Some people reading this will no doubt have favourite places they like to visit again and again, while others are perhaps always on the look out for somewhere new.

But which restaurant is best?

Review sites can be a good place to start. We recently featured the 10 Best Restaurants in Hua Hin according to TripAdvisor.

And while the list features lots of great restaurants, many of the reviews appeared to have been left by tourists, who may have been looking for a different dining experience compared to people who live in Hua Hin full time.

So where do people living in Hua Hin like to eat?

Whether you’re a tourist or local, it’s damn near impossible to round up the best restaurants in Hua Hin.

However, we thought we’d give it a go by asking Hua Hin Today readers, the majority of which are people who live in Hua Hin: “What’s your favourite restaurant in Hua Hin?

The question, asked online, was merely a simple straw poll to try and gauge which restaurants are popular among people living locally.

The list of restaurants included in the poll was by no means exhaustive or fully comprehensive.

There are lots of great restaurants in Hua Hin which were not featured in the poll.

And of the restaurants which were included in the poll, many of them are well worth visiting in their own right.

After receiving over 1,000 responses, we are now a bit closer to knowing which restaurants locals in Hua Hin like to visit.

While all the restaurants are listed in no particular order there were some clear favourites among Hua Hin Today readers.
